Two teenagers are accused of vandalizing two vehicles with anti-Christian sentiments, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

The incident happened about 7 p.m. on Nov. 6 in the parking lot of Millbrook Baptist Church on Whiskey Road, according to a report. A school resource officer saw two teenagers emerge from between two cars and stopped to speak with them.

The officer noticed markings on the windows of two cars, both of which were side by side, the report stated. One vehicle had a star inside a circle with the numbers “666” inside the star. A phrase was written on the other. Both drawings had the same handwriting.

One suspect produced a red permanent marker when asked by the officer if they had any markers, according to the report. While patting the suspects down, the officer found a silver marker on one of them. Both drawings had been done in silver ink.

One suspect was transported to Aiken Public Safety headquarters, booked and released to his mother, according to the report. The report did not indicate charges for the second suspect.

A few boys from the church got some cleaning material and were able to clean most of the marker off.
